The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) is a nationally-directed, locally-administered program of services for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their dependents. Career Services and Training grant recipients help farmworkers and their dependents acquire necessary skills to either stabilize or advance in their agricultural jobs or obtain employment in new industries. To support better economic outcomes for farmworkers, Housing grant recipients work to meet a critical need for safe and sanitary permanent and temporary housing. The NFJP is an integral part of the public workforce system and a partner in the nationwide network of American Job Centers. Additionally, NFJP partners with the Monitor Advocate System to ensure farmworkers have equitable access to career services, skill development, and workforce protections offered by American Job Centers, so they may improve their living and working conditions.
